Bigger filter on oil change?

I have a 2007 tacoma and i do most of my own maint. and on my last change i found we can use a FRAM (Auto Zone Brand) PH8A (The Model) and 6 full qtz of the oil u may prefer... I like the Castrol Full Synthetic Blend... This filter is so much bigger and u are able to fit another half qt of oil... What do u guys think? Is it safe to go bigger or do the recomended?

I used a Fram pH8A on my 79 20R for close too 300,000 but you will get lots of "Fram are junk" comments on this site.

Everyone has an opinion

Beware the FRAM haters and FRAM bashers. Some of those folks get down right nasty about it.....

I've used Fram filters and haven't had any issues.

So beware....you'll know it when you're being pounced on.

Hmm...

Sounds more like the engine blew up and destroyed the filter in the process.

You need a certain amount of oil pressure with your engine so you might want to stay stock. Might be bad.


(Just get a shorter dip stick)

Most people have their favorites because of either bad luck or good luck with their filters. If u cut open some of the filters on the market today you will see the difference between them. [not all filters are made the same]. I like to use Hastings or purolator pureone...just my 2 cents

I'm planning on using a K&N HP - 3001 on the next change. I used to use Fram on my other cars and never had a problem but I would never use Fram again.

Quality of the filter is more important than the size. JMO

If you use fram make sure you use the Tough Guard. It is 99% efficient and has the silicone anti drainback valve. This is very important on our Gen2 because the filter is mounted upside down.
